Speakout: April 5, 2013


Is there any particular reason why drivers feel they have to race down North Catherine Street? The speed limit is posted.


Are there more drug stores in town than grocery stores?


Why is the world’s most useful plant illegal to grow in this country? Because it can severely impact the profits of the oil, chemical, drug and timber industries, among others.


Is it necessary for the police to describe on TV how meth is made and used? I understand the need to remove the problem, but telling the general public can be the downfall.


If you are tired of your kids being subjected to test after test, you do have parental options. Go to the “Opt of State Standardized Tests — New York” Facebook page.


When is bullying in local high schools going to stop? Oh wait, it’s the principal that is the bully. There have been posting from the students on Facebook about it.


To all the parents of children of the Plattsburgh City School District, please get yourself registered to vote in the upcoming budget vote.


Such a shame that our high school didn’t allow students to participate in the absolutely worthwhile annual Youth Leadership Conference at CCC. Every other area school was represented.


New York shouldn’t make laws without relevant investigation. The 10-shot clip is standard for many manufacturers, and there are no 7-shot clips being made or planned


To the person complaining about the police budget: I guarantee that you are the same person who would complain if you have illegal activity going on next door to you and there wasn’t a quick response to your call. We need the Police Department.


The Sheriffs Department has 1,187 square miles to cover, plus all the civil duties of the county and overseeing trials at the court level. They don’t have the manpower to take care of the city as well.
